Mac Miller had a viral hit in 2011 with the song "Donald Trump," prompting the business mogul to tweet praise at the Pittsburgh rapper and call him "the Next Eminem."
Today, it looks like Mr. Trump changed his tune. He took to Twitter this afternoon to call Miller an "ungrateful dog" and threaten him with a lawsuit.
Referring to a wooden plaque that the rapper sent him, celebrating the success of the song, Mr. Trump tweeted: Little @MacMiller I don't need your praise ... just pay me the money you owe.
In a flurry of tweets, he also posted: Little @MacMiller, I'm now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog! and Little @MacMiller I have more hair than you do and there's a slight age difference.
The song, which has 75 million hits on YouTube, is not about Donald Trump; rather, it uses the financier as a symbol of monetary success.
Miller, who is touring in Austria, was not available for comment.
